  • A spectacular testimony to 19th century art! The neo-gothic chapel, the stained glass windows and recumbent statues inside are works by the greatest artists from that era: Delacroix, Millet, Ingres, Lenoir, Mercié, Vernet and many others.

    The Royal Chapel of Dreux was extended in 1840 by the future King Louis-Philippe of France and houses the tombs of the Bourbon-Orléans family. Far from the image of a crypt, it is a masterpiece presenting an overview of the arts of the 19th century. Sculptures and stained glass bear testimony to the artistic output of the industrial revolution. Some of the greatest names feature there: Delacroix, Millet, Lenoir, Mercié, Viollet-le-Duc, Flandrin, Larivière, etc. The architecture is a work of art in its own right. Its Neo-Gothic style was the work of Lefranc and is a moving tribute to the eclectic tastes of the 19th century.
